Steven Van Zandt collects his first six solo albums and over 50 unreleased tracks for the E Street Band guitarist’s upcoming RockNRoll Rebel – The Early Work box set.

The limited edition, 7LP/4CD set, due out December 6th, features six of Van Zandt’s long-out-of-print albums – 1982’s Men Without Women, 1983’s Voice Of America, 1985’s Sun City, 1987’s Freedom – No Compromise, the U.S. vinyl debut of 1989’s Revolution and the first vinyl release ever of 1999’s Born Again Savage – remastered on colored vinyl.

RockNRoll Rebel‘s four compact discs are packed with 51 bonus tracks, including previously unreleased demos, B-sides, rehearsals, outtakes, classic concert performances, and a number of never-before-heard Van Zandt compositions. One of the four discs focuses on bonus material from the Artists United Against Apartheid’s Sun City, while Van Zandt’s early live work with at the Stone Pony with Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes is also unearthed.

“It’s been a blast going through the archives and finding all these hidden gems,” Van Zandt said in a statement. “In addition to demos in various stages of completion, there are entire songs I’d completely forgotten about, and we found some really early things pre-Jukes like Southside Johnny and the Kid (the kid being me!). I’m excited to have my stuff back on vinyl for the first time in decades!”

RockNRoll Rebel – The Early Work, limited to 1,000 copies, is available to preorder now. Van Zandt has also started the process of bringing deluxe editions of his solo LPs to digital services, with 1982’s Men Without Women available for streaming now.
